[talking over each other] >> ronny isn't going to discredit or do what jack welch did but what he is going to say is the obama recovery such as it is and various other economic indicators you talked about which indicate it is slowing down and stagnant and might be slipping into recession. that is the perception that the average american and average voters operating with. dagen: perfect to see you. nice discussion about the number of people working that called the unemployment rate to drop below the 8% mark. eight hundred seventy three thousand was the number in the household survey. our next guest has been talking about this that the economy is not as weak as you might think. scott minored is joining me now from santa monica. you called it bu
